Today we’d like to introduce you to Leon Harris.
Hi Leon, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Growing up in a home where I was raised by a single mother, I decided early that I would ease some of her financial burdens by utilizing a pair of clippers that she had laying around the house. I taught myself how to cut my own hair at the age of 12. I began to cut some of the neighbors’ hair as well. Practicing in the neighborhood and continuing to give self cuts helped me to better hone in on my craft. After spending some time away, I was able to get into a program to get my license in barbering.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
My road to barbering was not a smooth one. Being raised in the hood, there was a lot of pressure to “get money” by any means necessary. Not all of my decisions lined up with the letter of the law. I spent some time away to come back to a world that was progressing at a rapid pace. I refused to be left behind. I had to deal with the struggles of having someone give me a chance considering my rocky past.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a master barber that has been in the barbering field for over 20 years. I am currently working out of Eclips barbershop located in Odenton, Maryland. I specialize in straight razor shaves with a full hot towel treatment. Leon The Barber provides classic cuts with attention to the finest details, crisp lines, and clean fades all within a clean and modern environment. I pride myself on providing a complete styling experience focused solely on the client.
Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Taking risks are necessary. Using a lot of resources to advertise is a risk that I have taken which is proving to be a profitable. Using all of the avenues of advertising has increased my clientele tremendously especially since the pandemic began.
